Marine and arctic ecosystems are some of the most fragile ecosystems in the world. So, when 24 countries and the European Union declared Antarctica’s Ross Sea as the world’s largest marine protected area (MPA) in October of this year, many people rejoiced (McGrath, 2016). The 1.57 sq km (600,000 sq miles) area is home to several species including Adelie penguins, minke whales and large amounts of krill (McGrath, 2016). The Ross Sea is also an important source of nutrients for the world as deep water upwelling and ocean currents supply the globe with nutrients (McGrath, 2016).

Based on the map, Latvia, Lithuania, Armenia, Belarus, Russia, Ukraine and Estonia are several countries that have the largest female population.

                 Bees are important keystone species that are responsible for every third bite of food (NRDC, 2011). In an effort to protect these key pollinators, a new regulation on neonicotinoids has been put into effect by the province of Ontario on July 1st, 2015 (MOECC, 2015). Neonicotinoids are a group of pesticides that coat corn and soybean seeds, and are suspected to be the main cause of the bee mortalities that happened between 2012 and 2013 (Health Canada, 2014). According to the London Free Press, this spring was the first time farmers are working under the new regulation.
